    Perth Brake Parts can do it. Next door to them is Aeroplate, who can bead blast and clean the caliper.

    It's easy enough to do yourself. Take the caliper to Anthony at Aeroplate and he'll dismantle and clean the caliper.

    Get some new seals and re-assemble the lot.

    There will be plenty of YouTube videos to show how it all works.

    I took this caliper to Aeroplate:



    Got it back and re-assembled it, with new seals:

    When you put the caliper(s) back on, try reverse-flushing it. Use a syringe and tubing to push fluid up into the caliper and up through the brake line to the master cylinder. Then you'll get pressure at the master cylinder so that you can bleed it properly.

    One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

    My waterbed broke this morning. Oh, I don't have a waterbed. Bugger.

    Here's a set that I did for the GSXR, from a wrecked 20 year old Bandit.



    Disassembled (a compressor and heat gun help)
    Cleaned
    Masked
    Blasted (Cycle Parts West in Bibra Lake)
    Cleaned
    Masked
    Painted (By 'tato in KG Gunkote - ideal for calipers)
    Cleaned
    Polished the NISSIN lettering
    New seal kit (bought online from the UK)
    New bolt kit (Pro-Bolt stainless)
    New pads (EBC HH pads front and EBC organic rear pads)

    You've just got to decide how good you want yours to look
